CMT Crossroads, known for pairing country music singers with musicians from other genres, joined Brantley and rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd in an amazing night filled with even better music. Some other artists who have teamed up for CMT Crossroads are Jason Aldean with Bob Seger, Rascal Flatts with Journey, Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks, and Carrie Underwood with Steven Tyler, just to name a few!
This combination of country and rock had the crowd on their feet, singing along! They performed Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man," "What's Your Name," "Still Unbroken," and "Sweet Home Alabama." Of Brantley's hits, they performed "Country Must Be Country Wide," "One Hell Of An Amen," "Kick It In The Sticks," and "Bottoms Up."
Their entire performance is filled with energy and they try to get the crowd involved as much as possible. These men are such great live performers, even watching on your computer screen will make you feel like you were there watching it in person!
Lynyrd Skynyrd formed in 1964 using the name My Backyard. They changed their name in 1969 and it stuck! They rose to fame with their signature song "Sweet Home Alabama." In 1977, they disbanded after a tragic plane crash, killing three of their members. The surviving members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour and have been touring ever since. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
Brantley Gilbert, the bad boy of country, has had success as a performer and a song writer. He wrote Jason Aldean's "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem" and has three No. 1 hits himself!
Take a look at their performance "Sweet Home Alabama!" You'll be singing along, just like the audience!
